Soooo what os are you running?
I am running Lion. Was hesitant about upgrading first but, ultimately, the benefits outweigh the drawbacks.
what are the drawbacks? I am deciding whether to upgrade or not and I know the pros but would like to know the cons.
Running Snow Leopard and Lion on multiple machines.
snow leopard - sticking with that for awhile...
Lion and I am happy with it
The poll has no option for Leopard?
The drawbacks, to me personally are that:
1. Boot times increased by ~10 secs and battery life decreased by ~1 hr (from 7.5hrs to 6.5hrs) though I expect it is because Chrome isn't fully updated for Lion.
2. I hate the living hell out of the "show desktop" (three fingers and a thumb outward pinch) gesture, which I use it a lot. The gesture, despite my best efforts to learn it, is still hit-and-miss and is painfully hard to use. Also, there's no way to change it (unlike other gestures).
3. Certain Apps still act wonky (for example: Parallels acts laggy,even after the latest update.
Everything else has been great. I [overall] like the Mission Control implementation and I LOVE the new Spaces implementation - it has increased my productivity by a fair amount. Apps launch faster (perhaps because of fully implemented 64bit support). Liking the updated Spotlight, Preview and Finder. File Versions, though can be annoying at times, is a welcome addition as well.
That best describes Lion as a whole. Lots of little things do not seem to be quite right.
I need to wait for Pro Tools 9.0.5 to be released for me to leave Snow Leopard completely.

Where's my Windows option? Derp
Oh, I wasn't talking about the OS - it's the individual 3rd-party Apps that act wonky. I expect the issues to go away once they are updated. On the whole, Lion is a solid OS, much more so than Snow Leopard was, when it first came out.
snow leopard atm, waiting for 10.7.1
Hmm--what happened to Leopard???
I'm thinking of buying another HD and installing Lion on that...
Just not too sure as yet.
I'm using Mac OS X 10.6 (Snow Leopard) on my MacBook Pro.
i highly recommend betterTouchTool, if you loved your magic trackpad before, you will completely love it once you get BTT. it lets you make up gestures, and assign them to all kinds of things (even scripts if you make them in automator and assign keyboard shortcuts). resizing windows (amazing by the way, has a nice windows snap like feature)
it makes your computer so much more efficient, i do so much with it, i can't imagine life without it. AND BEST OF ALL this ap is actually lion compatible!!! and it is really light on resources, considering how much it can do
It's funny, while you included Tiger as an option, you didn't include Leopard.
Using Lion but it has been graphically buggy, hopefully an update fixes it.
I'm running Lion on both of my Macs.
sorry for everyone with leopard I forgot to add you! Is there anyway to edit a poll?
All four on Lion ...
MacMini first upgraded; later clean install to fix VPN
MBA and iMac fine
MBP laggy Japanese keyboard; will try clean install too; if not reinstall SL on that one only
Beside full screen / dual screen trouble I like Lion
Running Lion but I have to say that I was expecting more of it
Running Lion on my MBA but still have SL on my MBP. Plan on keeping SL on MBP for a while, at least until all the programs I use extensively are fully compatible.
Once the bugs are fixed and more apps support it without incident, I will upgrade. (~10.7.3)
Right now, Adobe's apps have some issues, some have reported slowness... 15 years ago I was an early-adopter for everything. Not anymore. (that's not a jab at Apple; all new OSes have issues... but coming from Windows, where even Win7 SP1 has issues, I've learned to be content with one version and upgrade when all is proven well. I have more faith in Apple fixing Lion than Microsoft ever beginning to fix Windows.)
